Happy Thanksgiving from Loving More

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is always one of my favorite celebrations.  I am not sure if it’s the cooking and food, the gathering of good friends or just a day to be thankful for all the wonderful things in our lives.  For ten years now Thanksgiving has become a gathering of family and community.  In 1999, I opened my home to the local poly community for a Thanksgiving celebration that has become a tradition ...

ABC News Nightline Sensationalized “Debate” on Infidelity

jealousy_965822It is obvious to me that ABC news had no interest in having an intelligent adult discussion on the subject of why so many people across all cultural lines, religious background and nationalities have extra marital relationships or cheat.  If they did they would not have set up a talk about fidelity, sex and marriage in an evangelical church.  The setting certainly was dramatic and sensational but it is not objective or ...

The Crumbling Foundations of Traditional Marriage and the Nuclear Family

I was standing in line at the grocery store when an issue of Time Magazine caught my eye.  The cover was a badly made wedding cake with a plastic bride and groom plowed into the top, the cover article, Unfaithfully Yours, by Caitlin Flanagan.  I had to buy it and read this article.  In the contents under the cover story listing the byline was “The two-parent family is in trouble.  Why we still need the nuclear unit-and how to save ...
